Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I've purchased an external USB 2.4/5GHz compatible adapter and can see it in the list of wlan interfaces.

How can i make it a monitoring interface ? The only way is to make it manually using a console commands ?

Thank you for advice.

Kind r4egards.

Currently yes. CLI is only way to use a wlan3 radio, but probably/possibly not forever.

Use airmon-ng tool as usual to start/stop monitor mode of a capable device.

Thank you. The command "airmon-ng start wlan3" places it into Monitor mode, but:

1. Only on 2.4 GHz

2. When i enable the PineAP it again monitors ONLY on wlan0

Can you, please, explain more in details how to

1. Enable the monitoring on wlan3 on both frequencies

2. Make it default for the web interface when turning on PineAP feature ?

Thank you !

Airmon-ng isn't used to specify channel, iwconfig or the application you use the monitor interface on (like airodump-ng) will usually specify the channel/band as an option.

No, you already asked

Maybe in the future it comes to GUI. For now use ssh/terminal.

So, practically, there is no possibility to use the external USB WiFi adapter for monitoring purposes ?

You can use it with kismet, airodump-ng and horst for example. Is there a specific thing you are trying to do or need?

Supported (as in: we ship the driver in the firmware for it) adapters are as usable as they have ever been. The only thing that is not yet implemented (and coming soon in an update) is integration with Recon, etc.

Thank you, got it. Waiting for integration with Recon in the upcoming (hope soon) updates.
